Our Story

A brief introduction to Retro & Vintage Bristol – I’ve been pretty much obsessed with interiors and all things retro and vintage from as far back as I can remember. My career has involved various aspects of project management and I have run my own fireplace company in Bristol for the last 10 years having learnt my trade at Chesneys in London. 

Retro & Vintage Bristol is the fulfilment of a dream to curate a collection of retro, vintage and industrial originality with modern design and Indian influence.

Throw away all the rule books and mix the quirkiest of well worn vintage pieces with modern home accessories. Use soft, neutral textiles with raw industrial furniture and naturally worn wood with beautiful Indian accessories for a home which is stylish but lived in and welcoming.

We are lucky enough to work with some traditional, authentic workshops across north west India and Europe allowing us to offer some really unique pieces which will last for many years to come.

So that’s me – crazy about furniture – kept busy with all of the above, two children, and a lush showroom in Clifton, Bristol. For more information or help with anything on the website do give us a call or email … we’d love to hear from you.
